Awakening Sacred Passion
with Andrew Harvey

Andrew Harvey is the author of many spiritual books including The Direct Path.  He believes that the clue to the preservation of the environment and the spiritual and political transformation of planetary life that he advocates in The Direct Path lies in a massive global awakening of sacred passion - Passion for the Divine, for each other, for the Creation, for Life itself.  Empowered by the clarity and fire of such passion, the human race could well be capable of working together to create a New World.  April 3, 2004 from 9 am to 4:30 pm.

In his talk, Harvey will make clear what he believes ‘Sacred Passion" is.  Drawing especially on the poetry of Rumi and the Gospel of Thomas, Harvey will show how this ‘passion’ waits to be known and unleashed at the core of the Spirit and how, when it is awoken, it unifies and inspires the whole being.  Drawing on his work on the Sacred Feminine, Harvey will link this global awakening of ‘Sacred Passion’ to a return of reverence and respect for the Motherhood of God and will show how potentially radical and all-transforming authentic contact with the divine Feminine can be.

Andrew Harvey will end his presentation with a vision of Sacred passion expressing itself as sacred service to all beings - the goal and fruition of the Direct Path.

Andrew Harvey

Andrew was born in South India in 1952 and lived there until he was nine years old, a period he credits with shaping his vision of the inner unity of all religions.  He left India to attend private school in England, and entered Oxford University in 1970 to study history on a scholarship.  At the age of 21, he became the youngest person ever to be awarded the Fellow of All Souls College, England's highest academic honor.  In 1977, Harvey became disillusioned with life at Oxford and returned to India to begin his spiritual search.  He has since lived in London, Paris, New York, and San Francisco, and has continued to study a variety of religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity.

Harvey has written and edited over 30 books.  Honors he has received include the Benjamin Franklin Award and the Mind Body Spirit Award (both for Mary's Vineyard: Daily Readings, Meditations, and Revelations - photographs by Eryk Hanut), and the Christmas Humphries Award for A Journey In Ladakh.

Among Harvey's other well-known titles are: The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, co-authored with Sogyal Rinpoche; Dialogues with a Modern Mystic; The Way of Passion : A Celebration of Rumi; Hidden Journey; The Essential Gay Mystics; and Son of Man.

"Every age has its teachers, who keep the eternal truths alive for all of us. And when a generation is very, very lucky, it encounters a teacher so illumined that the words he delivers must be illumined as well. In the case of Andrew Harvey, the light he sheds is like a meteor burst across the inner sky. Sun at Midnight is his most magnificent work yet, so imagine what that means for your sky."

--- Marianne Williamson, author of Everyday Grace
